Well that was a moment of panic that set in. The abusive Baptist cult – I was abused at, has some cult members that are ‘best friends’ with the narcissist pastor, who abused me.
The wife is a hairdresser and unfortunately, her children go to the same school as my youngest child. She is blocked from my personal Facebook account, and that way I avoid having to see anything posted by her on the school FB page.
I asked for a recommendation for a hairdresser, and someone I am facebook friends with, sent a link to this abusive hairdresser woman.
Yikes – the last person I want to see is that woman or anyone from that cult, on my personal facebook account.
This woman is the one who I received a message from about the abuse witnessed and considered disgusting. The person who emailed me, has been to that Baptist cult, and was shocked by the child abuse that was encouraged there. She told me about this hairdresser starving her toddler, because the toddler would not eat dinner. She also said a lot of other abusive behaviour was witnessed – women being treated badly etc.
I validated this persons account of all the child abuse, spiritual abuse and domestic violence – that goes on there. Including all the physical abuse – taking belts to children, beating them etc.
A few emails went back and fore. I was glad she wrote to me, to confirm if it was this Baptist cult where I had been abused. It helped to know other people realised how abusive they all are and how disgusting their behaviour is.
So, when I received this recommendation of this hairdresser – I panicked.
But, I stopped, deleted the posts that were on my Facebook account. Blocked the hairdressers FB business account page.
Then I privately messaged the woman who posted to my account, and said I knew this hairdresser from an abusive church, where child abuse occurs, so I would give her a miss. And thanked her for thinking of me, for a recommendations. I don’t outright accuse this hairdresser of child abuse – even though she absolutely is a child abuser.
It’s hard when you are continually reminded and triggered by issues from abusers, that I would much rather never have to see again, or be connected to, in any way, or ever have to think about.
But, that’s how it is.
My anxiety went through the roof, and I immediately had a flood of thoughts and emotions about those abusive cult people. PTSD – is definitely still there.
But, I handled it okay.
